* the wedding of jo & matt, chiddingstone castle, kent

shooting my fourth london wedding this season at Chiddingston Castle, in kent, just outside of london, made me feel like i had lost myself in a jane austen novel, curled up on the couch, on a rainy saturday afternoon.  the last owner of this castle lived here in the sixties, until his girlfriend shot him for being a notorious ( & obviously wealthy ) philanderer !  well, i guess that’s one way to make your cheating boyfriend stop cheating.  from the antique floral wallpaper to the festoon curtaining four-poster bed, to jo’s incredibly stylish 1920′s art deco dress from The Vintage Wedding Dress Company, to libraries { and high tea & scones in the billiard room at 3 }, this incredible castle made for fabulous photos.  enjoy >

* bridesmaids { the movie }

to be truly honest, the last thing i felt like doing was spending time with a couple of  bridesmaids ( albeit it two dimensional ) or any thing to do with weddings on my day off.  but when a photographer friend of mine { who is usually very underwhelmed and cynical / he has high expectations ! } said i should see this film, because he thought it was better than “get him to the greek”, i had to go.  he was right – it is hilarious.  director,  paul feig,  together with the improv talents of five sensational comediennes, manage to take a story that could easily be a tad too “hollywood”, to produce a very fresh and real comedy.  kristen wiig, who cowrote the screenplay, plays annie, who is asked by her best friend, lillian ( maya rudolph ) to be her maid of honor.  and so the story, and wiig’s character, annie ( literally ) unravels.  the movie made my heart sing . . . but not as much as the policeman “mr nice”, with whom i fell madly in love *

* bladerunner for thierry mugler ad campaign

our inspirational south african paralympic athlete, oscar pistorius, has been handpicked to front thierry mugler’s futuristic campaign for the new cologne, A*Men.  because of a congenital disorder, Pistorius was born without fibias and both legs were amputated below the knees when he was 11 months old.  hence nicknamed the bladerunner, because of the use of two carbon fiber artificial limbs he uses to compete with, he holds the paralympic world records for 100, 200 & 400 meters, and now competes in both olympic and paralympic events.  he is currently training to represent south africa at the 2012 olympics in london.   to our bladerunner, may you blaze your way to nabbing that gold !  what an inspiration you are.
